The food here was absolutely delicious. Such a nice change from the good, but highly overpriced hotel meals. More reasonably priced, though all of Iceland is expensive. The owner came here as a nanny, married a local, and is now cooking up a storm. Unfortunately...More

We had a meal here after a long day of sightseeing and soaking ourselves in the secret lagoon, which is just 5 minutes away from this restaurant. The food was good and the owner was friendly.

Excellent Ethiopian food, they´ve toned down the sourness of the injera to suit local tastes and the food was delicious! Very cozy atmosphere and of course, they performed the Ethiopian coffee ceremony and some guests from the restaurant gathered around, shared some coffee and stories,...More

We had lunch here and really enjoyed it. The other clients were all American, we didn't see any locals here. The staff were wonderful and attentive, the food was genuine Ethiopian and very tasty. A nice change from the usual and we'd recommend it.
